Getting up at 5 am sucked pretty hardcore, it must be admitted. But I was able to get to the press room at 6:30, an hour before it opened, and be second in line. Then we were able to get to the floor, FIRST, in line. Got in exactly at 9, and the line didn’t finish getting in until almost 9:40. Got some good game play demos and interviews in, and now we are pausing to take a break and write up several articles.
Also, it’s like Cosplay heaven. I’ve had my camera with me and anytime I see a cool costume I ask if I could take a picture. I’ll be uploading an gallery of these eventually.
